Last Addition to the Giveaway!!

I know I’ve talked about my love for Isola Bella before. She is a local artist here on St. Thomas and her designs are so tropical & soothing. I’ve had a lot of brides use her work for their weddings – from welcome tote bags to canvas prints that they have used instead of the more traditional photo matte signatures. For my last addition to the giveaway, the lucky winner will receive the wooden seahorse art print (can also be used as a post card which I think would make a cool “save the date”), four Isola Bella coasters and this awesome gift bag with wooden gift tag:

So to recap the prize:

I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag book by Jennifer Gilbert (awesome read!)
St. John bookmark – specially made by donkey’s (heehee)
Airline luggage tag favor
Beautiful handmade Haitian necklace that benefits artist living in Haiti
Isola Bella tote bag, wooden art print, wooden gift tag & drink coasters

And if you’re lucky, I’ll throw in some of my kids left over Halloween candy! =) Don’t count on any chocolate, I tend to steal that for myself.

Contest ends at midnight on Halloween – the winner will be selected by random and announced the first week of December.

I’m a bit behind on my “favorite elements” challenge. I’ll continue to post pictures of my favorite wedding elements this month but they may trickle into November. My apologies to any couples that are not highlighted! If you were married in October and I wasn’t at your ceremony (I’m not at each wedding – some packages do not have an on-site coordinator or I have my assistant attend if we have two weddings that day) – please feel free to send me a picture of YOUR favorite element and I’ll get it posted!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Parasols instead of flowers…

I think this is such a great idea, especially when you have a large bridal party. A maids bouquet can be as inexpensive as $30 but a full sized maids bouquet is typically $75. If you have six maids…yikes, that can add up quick. I love the simple white against the freshness of their blueContinue Reading

Something new…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been doing wedding for years now and I’m starting to get a little tired of our ol’ conch shell & palm leaf aisles. I like fresh and I like modern and I’m on a hunt for new ideas. I’ve been toying around with the idea of driftwood andContinue Reading
